Sturgis Cottage Alterations  |  Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, White Plains, New York

Since 1915 Burke Rehabilitation Hospital has provided rehabilitation services and treated physical disabilities including stroke, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, neurological disorders, orthopedics and other illness and injuries. In addition to their clinical mission, the Hospital offers unmatched training environments for scientists to train, research, and seek new approaches to ailments.


Caldwell & Walsh contributed to the Hospital’s mission by providing construction services to renovate the 100 year old Sturgis Cottage on their campus for new laboratory research space. The ten-month project included the complete installation of an external three-story elevator, installation of new utilities and equipment for the HVAC system, as well as the renovation and conversion of existing offices to state-of-the-art laboratories for the medical research institute. The laboratory spaces have new fume and tissue culture hoods. There is also an animal surgical area with lab gases, conference room, and staff spaces. A considerable amount of new structural support steel as well as a new interior stair were required for the renovations. The addition was clad with brick and limestone to match the existing building. All work was performed without disrupting adjacent occupied spaces, including a sensitive animal holding area.
